I love the beast. Just got some snow tires on it for this season, so its set. Going to upgrade to something awd next year most likely. I would like a subie, but im thinking i might go eclipse GSX or talon TSI/awd. Either way I'm going to keep my ski cars cheap. Took it into a guard rail 2 seasons ago in the canyon, wasnt exactly my fault (noob texans afraid to drive in the snow stopped in the middle of the road on a high camber uphill turn). I got out of the car, kicked the bumper back into place and went on my way. I love my beater.
